Hello ffmpeg team, kindly help me with following issue
360sample.mp4 is 360 video and with following command out.mp4 is also 360

sudo ffmpeg -i 360sample.mp4 -vcodec libx264 -strict unofficial
-vprofile high  -acodec aac out.mp4

But with the following transcoding command out.mp4 is not 360 video, video
is playing top/bottom , spherical data as part of metadata is lost.

sudo ffmpeg -i R0010309_er.MP4 -vcodec libx264 -strict unofficial -vprofile
high  -acodec aac -f flv  RC.mp4

How to ensure that 360 metadata is preserve while transcoding.
Best Regards
